This is a terrific way to fix salmon...and it's so easy to do. The marinade mellows the fish flavor, and the dill sauce is a wonderful complement. I once served this recipe to 12 people from the Pacific Northwest who declared it was the best salmon they'd ever eaten! -Deb Essen, Victor, Montana

"Made this for my wife on the grill and she loved it. So much so that I'll be doing so again this weekend. Don't know if that's good or bad. Lol"

"Holy smoke, we grilled this with hickory chips and every person at the table just melted in their seats! Never have we tasted anything so sensory! Save the sauce for chicken tomorrow. Now this is salmon!"
